Savitri Erans can contribute a lot to serve the country

[Re: “India has to reorganise herself”—Submitted by Kittu Reddy by RY Deshpande on Fri 03 Feb 2012 05:29 PM IST |  Profile |  Permanent Link Churchill turned out to be a very good instrument in this work when fate of the entire civilization was at a stake. Indian politicians of the time were dumb and deaf to these things; one manifestation of it was the rejection of the Cripps’s Proposals that had come on the wings of superior vision and inspiration. Unless India is organized on the material plane, she cannot open to these possibilities.
During the World War Two Winston Churchill was asked: “What is your aim in the War?” He simply replied: “Victory.” In that one word is the quintessence of time that shaped history. Some other power had entered into operation and it seized the ready instrument. It is some noble force of that kind which must enter into our reckoning.

[Activism: Why Swamy gets it right and Team Anna wrong Akshaya Mishra - Feb 2, 2012 But what makes Dr Subramanian Swamy so effective as a crusader? ‘Knowledge’, should be the one-word answer. Extended a bit, it is his ability to work out the beguiling nuances in the functioning of institutions correctly and framing the problem areas as legal questions. Feb 3, 2012 12:25 AM]

Survival compulsion is driving the Fourth estate to function like the Fifth column in the country. Opposition parties, too, are turning willing partners in this rabble rousing game, thus weakening the fine threads of the national fabric. The huge working capital of the democracy industry including the media paraphernalia has become leviathan-like dominating all other aspects of the collective life. The effect is so all encompassing that the very definition of ethics or corruption has been warped. Such perversions leading to plutocracy is likely to deteriorate further. Savitri Erans can contribute a lot to stop this rot. [TNM55]
